Tomorrow Earthquake Preparedness Meeting At The Laurelhurst Community Center

The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) is holding a special meeting tomorrow night  on Earthquake preparedness at 7pm at the Laurelhurst Community Center in the Fireside Room.

The information says:
Is your family prepared for the BIG one, or another type of sudden emergency?

Tomorrow night, a representative of the City's Office of Emergency Management will present a one-hour talk outlining concrete steps each of us can take now to prepare for disasters. 
Consequences from a serious earthquake may include utility outages for prolonged periods, significantly delayed fire and police response, houses slipping off foundations, house fires, burst water pipes, broken gas lines, trapped and possibly seriously injured family members and neighbors.

Some authorities recommend that we prepare to live with only our own resources for as long as a month. It's a daunting challenge, but we can take steps now to be more prepared and comfortable if disaster strikes. 
The City has an extensive Emergency Management website listing resources and recommended steps to take to prepare for emergencies.
